This is the only exhibition worldwide where Frida Kahlo’s paintings can be seen in one place. Some paintings, especially from Kahlo’s early years, have never before been seen.
Presented by Global Entertainment Properties 2, LLC, (GEP2) the exhibition features 123 exact replicas of her known paintings in original size and original materials, and hand-painted in the same style in which Kahlo painted them. These replicas are painted by master artists and licensed by ©Banco de Mexico Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Museums Trust/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2008.
Also on display are over 500 fascinating possessions— jewelry, dresses and adornments identical to those with which Kahlo surrounded herself. All are handmade using traditional methods, materials, and tools.
There is also a substantial collection of photos of Kahlo, her family, and friends in her work and life environments and a large collection of pre-Colombian through present-day Mexican folk art, which held a position of great importance in her and husband Diego Rivera’s lives. The exhibition was co-curated by passionate art lovers and collectors in Baden-Baden, Germany, the city where Kahlo’s father spent his youth before emigrating to Mexico. Their vision for this exhibition was to not only touch the eyes and minds of the visitors, but above all, their hearts.
